- Make sure you complete your travel claim via MOL/OBI once you reach your final destination. It is money you are entitled to.
- Personal Statement of Military Compensation and Verification of Military Education (VMET) on MOL (anytime you want to look). PSMC is a good breakdown of what entitlements you receive in the military. It may shed some light on what it will take for you to maintain your current quality of life. VMET shows the courses you attended while on active duty and whether they are creditable for college credits.
- If your OBI is CERTIFIED, and you take ANNUAL LEAVE before your TERMINAL START DATE, please bring in a copy of your APPROVED MOL LEAVE REQUEST. This will avoid any potential delays in providing you with your DD 214 and Separation Orders.
-DO NOT input LWAS or Transition PTAD in the MOL leave application, it WILL interfere with your ability to be processed out by the HH PAC.
